CARLOS JEAN, DJ and star of the Spanish TV show El Hormiguero will headline next month’s Weekend DJ Festival in Cartagena.
The six time Grammy nominee and versatile DJ, also part of the duo NawraJean with actress and vocalist Nawja Nimri, will close the event on Saturday May 27, with his refreshingly sophisticated fusion of soul sounds, latin downloads and acid jazz drops.
Organisers are still finalising the full festival line up, but in a change to previous years they have added an extra day to allow more acts to take part.
The event, now in its third year will run from 20.00h on Friday 26 May and 5.00pm on Saturday May 27 at the Stadium Cartagonova in the city and run through until around 04.00am on the following morning.
Acts confirmed for the Friday night are The ‘dream team’ that created the ‘max mix’ remastering of disco hits for Spanish radio during the 1980’s and by contrast to purely electronic music, Ayoho from Cartagena.
Other acts performing on Saturday are Taoo Kross, who has mixed for both David Guetta and Steve Aoki and Albert Neve, who will arrive direct from the Ultra Music Festival in Miami.
Shake Coconut, Brain Breakers and local DJ’s Plosly and Javi Ponce complete the list of confirmed performers.
There will also be a DJ competition over the weekend plus bars and food trucks and the Hormiga Hippy Market.
Although the final line up is yet to be announced, organisers have released tickets with discounted prices starting at five euros. Information on tickets can be obtained at the website www.oferplan.laverdad
